To Be

To Be
By Jordan Bates

Fast-forward nights of trickling 
whiskey 
risking my 
liver for friendships 
like diamonds

amidst the expanding 
panorama

sight-seeing mind-
bleeding my calling
falling never ever
will I
forget to be a good boy

like Mom always told me to
be nice

so climb do i ever
elevate my aura
aligning vibes with 
universal verses hymns
melodies 

pursuing perfect
transcendence
like a mythical ray
of light amidst

millennia
of
blackness

because a God
is what I want to be when I 
grow up 

and I’m

back now
background
surrounded 

by people! people
I love

amigos like three notes
of symphonic beauty
tickling my ear
drums rustling
the leaves
of this soul  

and I

create
a legacy 

take nada for granted, yes,
I thank
the Essence each
second
for this chance
to be.
